    I have a Sears 5HP snow thrower, and I need help on governor adjustment. When the throttle is set at high speed, the RPMs' are very very high to the point where the engine needs to eb shut down. The engine is a 5HP Tecumseh
    on a snow thrower. Are there any websites where I can log onto to get this information? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
